    I know. They never had that rule before... (granted, I haven't asked to be put through to duty nurse in about a year, if not longer)
    I don't see why that should be the case. I would call back and ask the duty worker to clarify this is the case, the receptionist (I'm assuming it's them you got through to?) might be mistaken. In all of the many trusts and services I've been under, it's never been the case and actively encouraged to ring the duty worker if CCO is unavailable, that's one of their main reasons for being a duty worker *sigh*

    I'm not well enough to fight atm, tbh. Will just sit it out til my CPN is back at the hospital (she's out on home visits atm, back in the other local hospital around 12.30pm) and then try and get through to her. Coz that's a few hours away, I phoned uni in desperation and the mental health adviser spent nearly half an hour making a crisis plan with me, to tide me over til nurse is back

    I hope 12:30 is manageable for you. Contact me if you need support.


    ----------

    Talked to CCO on the phone and the words just wouldn't come out properly. There was a person claiming to be from the estate agency doing an inspection but now I'm worried. Been up since 4am because they did something to my brain. Not a good day.

    I'm doing great! I have my slip ups and have gone on to have a few depressive episodes, but I feel more confident now than I've had for a while. Starting to see my self-worth...although Uni can slap a cactus :lol: How about you? :hugs:

    Anyone had experience getting a sick not for mental health reasons for GP?

    Got appointment next week for sick note to accompany my ESA application. She seems like a lovely doctor but a bit worried she'll think I'm fishing for benefits, which I am I guess, but I legit can't work or even travel to a place of work so need the money to pay rent.

    I haven't personally had one, though have been offered a couple. My mum had sick notes for her depression, and it wasn't difficult to get them. At least in her experience, the GPs are quite understanding and are quite happy to help in that respect

    I had quite a few for uni for my depression and they were fine as i was honest what i needed it for.

    My ex also used to get them for his ESA and again his GP was fine doing them as he was always honest why he was getting them.

    So just be honest and i cant see it being an issue

    Thank you Panda

    Do you know roughly how long you are signed off for? Or does it really depend? I hate going to the GP often, I feel like I'm using up valuable resources.

    What was it in reference too? If it was important I would call them. Also, it's still not 5pm. Give it 4:30 and call them I guess.

    I went in to see the nurse today about something I can't talk about on here and she called the dr in and he said he would ring EIP and get someone to come out to see me asap

    sounds helpful! what was your situation if you don't mind me asking?

    I know home treatment suck. But they can keep you safe. If you want to PM me about the situation I'm happy to talk. Been involved with EIS and crisis team for a few/long times. Not triggered easily either
